How much do you know?

How much do you know
About the person
You spend your entire
Life with?

How much do you know
About your parents
The ones you spent
All your childhood years with?

How much do you know
About your friends
The people you share
Your innermost
Thoughts with?

How much do you know
About your colleagues
Your peers
Those you spend
The majority of your day with?

How much do you know
About yourself
The individual you are 43965 f520 How much do you know?
The person you were
The man or woman you want to be?

How much do you know?

How much time do you spend
Getting to know
The people
Not the names or faces
The thoughts, the dreams

How much effort do you put
In probing your mind
Your heart

How much do you know?

    I agree with you, Susan. I don’t think one can ever fully know someone…well it’s hard enough to get to know oneself first…others come next. But I don’t think that should stop us from going on this journey of self-discovery, winch ultimatelyleads to self-improvement and empathy toward others.
